Miss Saigon


Show Synopsis

This epic adaptation of Puccini’s 1904 opera Madame Butterfly explores love and loss in the Vietnam conflict. Miss Saigon is one of the most stunning theatrical spectacles of all time. Nominated for an incredible number of Olivier, TONY, and Drama Desk Awards, Miss Saigon is the second, massively successful offering from the creators of Les Misérables: Claude-Michel Schonberg & Alain Boublil.

In the turmoil of the Vietnam War, Chris, an American soldier, and Kim, a Vietnamese girl, fall in love and marry but are distressingly separated when Saigon falls. As years pass, Chris, unable to contact Kim, remarries and attempts to move on with his life. Kim, however, gives birth to Chris’s son and waits faithfully for Chris’s return. When circumstances bring Chris back to Vietnam he learns the truth, but before he is able to speak with Kim, she takes her own life ensuring their son will be taken back to America with his father. Miss Saigon is an epic, daring musical that is universal in its emotional power.
